The cultural and exhibition project entitled TAKE CARE. Modern and contemporary art from the Unipol Group’s Heritage, curated by Ilaria Bignotti, constitutes the 2019 edition of the annual event CUBO dedicates to the artistic heritage of the Unipol Group, disseminating knowledge of art and making it accessible to the public.
The exhibition is divided among two Unipol locations: Milan hosts the exhibition entitled Potere alla materia! La prospettiva umana e tecnologica (Power to matter! The human and technological perspective), which seeks to highlight the potential of technological experimentation and new media. In Bologna the exhibition is entitled Al lavoro! Uomini e opere per la società (Get busy! Men and works for society) and focuses on work and its value, not only productive, but ethical and social.
The Bologna show begins with artists such as Aldo Borgonzoni, Piero Annigoni and Alberto Sughi, seekers of the figurative, and attempts to recount the history of art as an instrument of struggle and social affirmation, in the committed vision of the artist. If Fontana revolutionised the world of art with new materials in Milan, and hence society, from Alberto Sughi to Aldo Borgonzoni, from Carlo Levi to Leonardo Cremonini, the new Italian representation questioned society itself on the great topics of the value of work in its relationship with the environment and the landscape, i.e. a social space where each member of the community had to find an expression of his or her abilities to support the collective.
This exhibition represents a visualisation and further laboratory for reflection and research.
A peremptory and pressing message indeed. It takes very little to discover, read and share it.
The road is still long. Get busy!
